Where To Book a CBT Test Near Dartford

RideTo work with many partner training schools around the surrounding counties of London. If you live in Dartford, Kent the closest and potentially most convenient CBT test centre is Edventure Rider who are based North of the river in West Thurrock.

The best way to get to Edventure rider would be to drive, as it’s just a 15-minute drive over the Dartford crossing from Dartford.

If you intend on travelling to your CBT test via public transport, Edventure probably isn’t the most convenient option as you will have to get a train into central London first and then get to

Chafford Hundred Train station near Lakeside Shopping centre. This journey could take you around 2 hours or more.

If you need to get public transport to your CBT test the best place to train might be Phoenix Motorcycle training in Sidcup as this takes only around an hour to get to by bus or a combination of buses and trains.

Phoenix is located at the Bexley Road Safety Centre and was the first purpose-built motorcycle training centre in the UK.

BLT Motorcycle Training would also be another option for your CBT motorcycle training. This RideTo Partner School is based in Thamesmead at the Thames Water Works.

Price of a CBT Test in Dartford

The cost of a CBT test varies depending on the location and facilities of the training school. CBT test sites around Dartford in Kent will cost you between £140 and £180.

Be sure to check what equipment is included in the training day package price. Some training schools require you to bring your own helmet and/or a jacket and gloves.

What Is a CBT Test and Do I Need One?

Anyone who lives in the UK who passed their driving test after February 1st 2001 is required to do a CBT test if they want to learn to ride any form of motorcycle, scooter or moped.

CBT is short for ‘Compulsory Basic Training’ and this ‘training’ must be completed before you are legal to ride a motorcycle on UK roads.

You are limited to riding up to a 125cc scooter or motorbike if you are 17 years of age or over and if you are 16, you can only ride a 50cc moped after passing your CBT test.

How To Learn To Ride a More Powerful Motorbike

If you want to ride a larger, more powerful motorbike than a 125cc and you are 19 or over, you can then complete a full licence test after your CBT to then be able to ride up to a 35kw motorcycle. Once you are 24 you are then able to ride any bike, this is also known as an unrestricted licence.

If you are 18 years old you could still complete a full licence test. You would still be restricted to a 125cc motorbike, however you won’t have to display L plates on your bike and you would be able to take passengers and ride on motorways once you pass the test.
